Uganda: Convicted homosexuals to be included in Uganda sex offender registry

[ – 5/7/21]

Ugandans convicted of having sex with people of the same sex would be included in a new sex offender registry, following the passage by Parliament of a new anti-gay bill May 4.

If the bill is signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni, people convicted under provisions of the Sexual Offences Bill, 2019 would be entered for life into a publicly accessible sex offenders registry. The database would be hosted by the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) and would be accessible by security agencies, health insurance companies, schools, landlords, banks, and the general public.

Members of Parliament said that the bill was necessary to preserve Ugandan culture and protect children and families.

Uganda wants to do what California did in the 1940s! Trying to catch up???

It would seem the ripple effect of California’s registry foolishness still impacts today.

Typical. These people are living in the dark ages.

They have a legal term called “corrective rape.”

At least they’re honest about their motives.

This is good for us, it shows the insanity and discriminatory nature of the registry. It is totally whimsical, whatever the people in charge feel is wrong is what goes on the registry.


One form of rebellion is to violate this law, gay or not.
